Having dinner at my parent's with their old friends, the Suetsugus. I took the opportunity to lug over a suitcase of all my spices and sauces that are leftover and I won't use before moving. Before dinner, Koko (Mrs. Suetsugu) did Kamishibai for us...old traditional story-telling. Apparently there are translated versions being sold in the U.S. and becoming popular...

I love your parents house (especially the orange walls!)

Wish I could have been there for the story telling.

I did kamishibai for my niece's 4th grade class in the US when I visited earlier this year. Storytelling is so much fun and the Japanese folktales are interesting. So much like the ones I knew growing up but different, too.
